They say beauty is only skin deep, but those who know true love knows it goes much deeper. Michael Hoskin can tell you falling in love with someone’s beauty is only the surface layer. It takes falling in love with their personality, their passions, their likes and their dislikes to truly fall in love with the person that they are. He knows that first hand with his wife Turia Pitt. In 2011, when they were still dating, Turia was in an ultramarathon in the Australian Outback when she found herself trapped in the flames of a wildfire. 65 percent of her body was covered in extreme burns. When she reached the hospital, Turia’s face had swelled to more than double its size. She spent the next month in a coma, and during that time, Michael bought an engagement ring, and promised himself, “If she lives, I’ll marry her.” Turia spent the next two years in the hospital undergoing extensive reconstructive surgeries and through it all, Michael took on the role of caretaker and never left her side. Read his inspirational words about his wife and their current situation. Michael is a real hero who knows love isn’t just skin deep.
